bill just minutes ago. congresswoman michele bachmann is here next. ...>>neil: in press conferences from the president but he spoke at a campaign rally in colorado. >>reporter: one day after the president used the interview with cbs to say that mitt romney shoots first and aims later, today, he got into trouble because the president had done an interview with a spanish magazine saying that egypt is in longer an ally which sounded like a solicit in u.s. policy because it has been officially an ally by u.s. law going back to the 1980's. carney today told reporters and this is a term of art, whether you are an ally or not and since we do not have a mutual defense treaty with egypt it is not an ally not sitting well at the state department briefing where officials were pressed on this because israel is in the same position. does that mean israel is not an ally? the state department spokeswoman said, yes, egypt is a non-nato ally with the united states so this mixed message today put the president a little bit on defense after he had mitt romney on defense on the middle east issue. what
, gosh, she was mean and unladylike. i mean this is somebody who kind of makes michelle bachmann look like a hippie. >> wow. >> michele bachmann, hippie. >> i want to bring you in here and set the context, many people watching me feel like gosh, claire mccaskill seems much more reasonable and senatorial than her challenger todd akin, than the guy calling her all these names, ma some nistic games. in july he was up by five points. in august, she's now up by nine points, but the money may be coming back from republicans here. >> right. >> how do you make sense of a shift in the polls and republicans saying we're over this guy, done with him, pulling out, maybe not. >> because they're liars. they think they can hold on -- grab a senate seat an he's the one they will put their money back in. that's always been true. i said it the day they were pulling out. and if i were claire mcskas kill i would embrace the wild cat label, i'm a wild cat fighting for your family. i would be really proud of it. but you know, ma someny works with some and if he feels like if he kicks her again maybe he'll
would think that rick perry and michele bachmann had just learned the u.s. was on the road to armageddon. actually, they were reacting to the decision by the supreme court to uphold president obama's affordable care act probably does signal the end of time. let us be honest. chief justice roberts to the disappointment of many conservatives sided with his liberal peers is actually no lefty. and if mitt romney is elected president and gets several supreme court picks justice roberts, chief justice will preside over the most conservative court in our nation's history. and joining us from new york to discuss the intersection of presidential politics and the supreme court is jeffrey toobin, the author of the "the oath, the obama white house and the supreme court." jeffrey toobin, so glad to have you inside "the war room." >> great to talk to you governor. >> jennifer: you and your great books on the series of the court. will you go down in history as the documenter of all of the good gossip behind the pillars
on. >> where are all the conservatives like michele bachmann who have been running around for several years calling it obama care, socialism and everything else, government takeover, where are the conservatives? all of a sudden they are quiet. >> they may be squawking more in the days to come. susan said ryan was a bad pick, but for a bunch of reasons. one of them is that he wasn't chosen to stand for anything. when i was wrong, i was like we're going to have a real debate about two different directions for the country. paul ryan's budget, he believes these things. president obama believes different things. mitt romney is putting meat on the bones and we're going to have a real debate. >> i thought the same thing by the way. >> whether you liked it or not, it seemed like a strategy. but then to pick paul ryan and muzzle him, i thought ryan was more damaging to the ticket than romney was on the sunday shows because if you don't let him talk about what he believes, he was like sarah palin. gasping for air. he didn't have an answer if he's told to not to talk about what he believes. >> p
michele bachmann and jim dement, ryan fired up the crowd when he took aim at the health care law mandate requiring insurers provide free family planning coverage including birth control. >> this is into the threat and insult to one religious group. it is a threat and insult to every religious group. when mitt romney is elected, we will get to work on day one to reappeal that mandate and all of p obamacare. >> i'm joined now by deputy political editor who was at that summit earlier. good afternoon to you. paul ryan helped to fire up the base no doubt. how does that kind of rhetoric play to the 1 million or so undecided voters most of whom we know are not socially conservative? >> we know the health care mandate is not very popular even with independents. but most people have also indicated that they want to move on after the supreme court ruling. and i'm not sure how much weight this really carries considering that mitt romney also strongly supported a mandate as part of his health care reform plan in massachusetts. >> they certainly were not in com any's corner during the primaries. what
'donnell later coached mitt romney and michele bachmann. they spent hours trying to replicate debate moments. >> you have the candidate stand in front of a podium like this as realistic as possible? >> yeah. you want a strong bearing, erect. look at colin powell. he commands the podium. it's like this. >> it's about making sure that you fill the stage more than your opponent does. >> the candidates practice debating stand-ins. for obama, john kerry's plays romney. rob portman plays obama. >> you never see videotape of this, not even pictures. >> no. there's a reason why. you don't want to show those vulnerable moments. >> we don't want to give away any component to our prep. >> in the 2000 campaign, one of mckinnon's secretaries gave prep video to the gore campaign. >> gore campaign went straight to the fbi. >> what happened to her? >> she went to prison for a year. >> what's so secret? i pretended to be a candidate. limited government -- >> just limited government. what kind of limits are you talking about? can you be specific. >> yes, i can list cuts. >> would you cut defense? >> so you're
'm strong and informed. he sometimes makes michele bachmann look like a hippy. >> does this bring back this whole war on women narrative that's not repful to the republicans? >> of course it does. i have two words for todd akin. he is idiot-like. it does. it sends a message to the broader public and certainly independent voters in missouri that the republican running there is prehistoric. it brings up issues that republicans don't want to talk about right now. we want to talk about economic issues and not the issues that todd aakin keeps dragging back in. >> some folks came out for him in recent days saying the republican establishment needs to get behind him. there's indications they're thinking about it. if they did that, would that be a big mistake? >> well, it's a strategy of necessity. he's the senate slot that could bring the majority to the republicans, so they don't have a choice now because he's in the race. they're trying to save him. this is a good example of what happens when you make the wrong bet in the primaries and elect the wrong people to represent your party in the p
